    Operation Cactus, visa waiver, tax-free trade, and now this. And those ungrateful fvcks reward us by canceling airport BOT contract for GMR, and giving it to a Chinese company instead. It's not like China would have reached out with that fresh water, in time.

    By now Maldives have tasted the reality that during a crisis, it is the neighbors who come for help rather than a friend who is residing 1000 km away. So before initiating any action against India, Male must think 1000 times. We want the Chinese out of our backyard and Maldives must respect this.

    It was about that 2012 drama, where they kicked out GMR, and threatened to snap diplomatic ties with India if it interfered with the political turmoil there.

    They are not allowing the migrant workers access to the drinking water. Fresh water is available only to those who possess Maldivian National ID.

    True. but when Children misbehave you cannot let them die of thirst. Better to let them learn that in times of crisis, who they can actually fall back on.

    Only that even if they are children, they are not Mother India's. India is not responsible for their well-being. Good people get exploited often.

    Maldives Water Crisis: India Sends 1,200 Tonnes of Fresh Water

    IAF has delivered 9 consignments now, more coming. I think when INS Deepak reaches Male the situation will be mitigated, one plant is now functioning.

    The other countries are starting to chip in:

    Sri Lanka has sent some 1 lakh bottles.

    Interesting tweet

    Seems like China has some important people in their pocket here, but there also seems to be quite some discontent against the existing govt, amongst people there.

    Chinese aid:

    The ship that the Chinese have sent is this one:
